1. Difficulty paying attention
Children with ADD may have difficulty focusing on one task for an extended period of time. They may be easily distracted by noises or movement around them and have a hard time completing assignments or tasks.
2. Difficulty completing tasks
Along with having trouble focusing, children with ADD often struggle to complete tasks. This is often due to their impulsiveness and hyperactivity which can cause them to lose focus or become sidetracked easily.
Children with ADD are often very active and can't sit still for very long. They may be constantly fidgeting or squirming and be unable to relax. This can often lead to problems in school or at home when they're trying to focus on a task.
4. Impulsive behavior
Children with ADD may act impulsively without thinking about the consequences of their actions. This can lead to problems in relationships with friends and family, as well as difficulties in school or at work.
5. Inability to sit still
Along with being hyperactive, children with ADD often have a difficult time sitting still for any length of time. This can make it hard for them to focus in class or during other activities.
6. Easily distracted
Children with ADD are often very easily distracted by noises or movement around them. This can make it hard for them to stay focused on a task or conversation.
7. Poor listening skills
Children with ADD often have difficulty paying attention to what others are saying and may not listen carefully or completely. This can lead to misunderstandings and problems in social situations.
8. Fidgeting or squirming
As mentioned before, children with ADD are often very fidgety and cannot relax easily. This can be especially frustrating for parents and teachers who are trying to get them to focus on a task.
9. Running around or climbing excessively
Along with being hyperactive, children with ADD may run around excessively or climb on things they shouldn't be climbing on. This can be dangerous and disruptive, especially if it's happening in a public place like school or the grocery store.
10. Talking excessively
Children with ADD may talk more than is appropriate for their age or speak out of turn in conversations. They may also have a hard time waiting their turn when speaking.
